I've been a donor to OHS for about seven years and knew about the good work of adoptions, but until I took a tour of the shelter, I had no idea about how much the organization does! The stories of lives saved are truly inspirational. I have since adopted a cat who had been brought in injured. Other shelters might not have been able to save her, but the folks in their animal hospital took a chance and saved her life. I'm so grateful for all OHS does!

OHS is truly dedicated to animal welfare. I always feel my donation is well spent and much appreciated, not matter the size. Love the people there and the facility. Have visited some other Humane Societies around the country, and while all were good, OHS is the best!

I am a donor as well as a volunteer. From the start, OHS has been the best investment that I've ever made with my charity contributions.

OHS is a visionary facility always looking forward to implementing concrete, realistic goals. It has extremely talented leaders who have assembled an equally gifted staff. In 2010 alone, OHS adopted out over 11,000 animals.

Donor dollars are allotted carefully. Emphasis on animal care is always the top priority.

I've never encountered a more deserving nonprofit and plan to continue to support them to the best of my abilities.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing hundreds of pets lead clean, healthy and happy lives while awaiting adoption.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

purchase adjoining properties and expand the facility to serve even more animals.
